Carson City’s Artist of the Year for 2001, Carol Foldvary-Anderson, has been teaching the free art classes for the past five years. Children of all ages are encouraged to come out to the historical site and receive instruction from the award-winning artist.

Some of the art projects will be drawing and learning about warm and cool colors, while designing cartoon faces. Participants will use oil pastels and watercolors and draw fish and paint sunsets.
